Telephone Campaign 2019


The 2019 Goldsmiths Telephone Campaign took place on campus for three weeks, from 3 March until 24 March, with 345 alumni donating over £110k of essential funds for Goldsmiths and our students.

What was the telephone campaign for?

The telephone campaign is a unique chance for alumni to speak to current students to find out more about the University today, and our future plans. It is also a rare opportunity for students to find out more about the career paths of alumni and it provides them with valuable work experience in an ever more competitive job market for young graduates.

Crucially, the telephone campaign raises vital funds for Goldsmiths, helping those experiencing financial hardship and supporting scholarships and bursaries for some of our brightest students. This support provides a lifeline to those facing unforseen financial hardship or facing barriers to education and enables students to make a real impact on campus and in the wider community.

When did it happen?

A small team of current students called alumni between 6–9pm during the weekday evenings. During the weekend students called between 11am–5pm on Saturdays and from 2–8pm on Sundays.

Didn't receive a call? We still need your help...

If you didn't hear from us, please still consider making a contribution. A small donation from everyone can mean a significant difference for the lives of Goldsmiths students.
